Chouquette

I have not been baking regularly. 

Almost forgot how to bake these puffs, but I remember these are everyone’s favourite the last time I baked them. True enough, there are no leftover today.

Kueh Lapis

Kueh Lapis, in layers of patience and hard work. Took me nearly 3hrs baking these layers from scratch. Can only do this once a year to prepare for Chinese New Year .  But then, how not to bake this cake when it’s everyone favourite. I still prefer the original lapis version.

The girl prefers the original though she likes the colour.  

Milk Bread Loaf

Milk bread loaf for everyone once awhile when I have the time to bake. 

These bread took me nearly 24 hrs to complete. Nevertheless, they are very soft and good to eat on its own. 

 

Recipe 

Sponge Dough
bread flour 182g
instant yeast 2.5g
warm milk 110g

Combine all and proof at room temp until the dough size doubled, then set aside in the fridge to proof for 16-24hrs.

Bread Dough
bread flour 78g
milk 62g
sugar 21g

Combine all, together with the sponge dough, except the butter. Knead the dough until the dough is smooth, add in the butter. Continue to knead until the dough is elastic. Set aside to proof for 30mins. Divide into 3 portions. Shape and proof. Bake in preheated oven at 180d for 35mins.

 

Brownies, anyone?

My first bake post in DEC!  Brownies! 

I love DEC, especially Christmas and the year end cooling weather although not much of a difference in Singapore. It’s a long weekend for myself and the kids (yep we are not going anywhere this year)  I so miss baking after a hiatus for a month.

So there, decided to bake some dark chocolate brownies for ourselves and my cell group pple. Zann was asking why so little white chocolate… ….

175g unsalted butter
100g dark chocolate, chopped

4eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt

(Sifted and fold in) 
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup baking powder
